Sadly, Yasiel Puig is not baseball’s worst baserunner


Not gonna lie: I’m a little bummed that Yasiel Puig doesn’t rank worse on David Schoenfield’s list of worst baserunners in baseball than he does.

I feel like Puig will be less fun if he gets mainstreamed and doesn’t aggravate people as much as he has for the past couple of years. Not being the worst at something people get mad at him for risks that very state of affairs coming to be.

What next? People overthrowing more cutoff men than he does? Flipping their bat with more disdain? He’s already lost the title of most reckless driver to Jayson Werth. Where does it end?

Diamondbacks extend Torey Lovullo’s contract through 2024 season

PHOENIX — The Arizona Diamondbacks extended manager Torey Lovullo’s contract through the 2024 season.

The deal is the third straight one-year extension for the longest-tenured manager in team history.

Lovullo is 446-483 in seven seasons, with one playoff appearance.

Lovullo led the Diamondbacks to the 2017 National League division series his first season and a winning record the next two. Arizona general manager Mike Hazen stuck with Lovullo after an injury-filled 110-loss season in 2021 and the Diamondbacks have enjoyed a resurgence this year.

The Diamondbacks enter against Atlanta 35-24, tied with the Los Angeles Dodgers for the best record in the NL.
